Our current reality informs me that this is how I’ll be doing DJ sets for some time (I wrote about it here). So be it. These have actually been fun, and I look forward to spinning records in my garage each week–endless music, endless whiskey and, of course, connecting with friends and even strangers…join me tonight on Twitch and let’s have fun (hey, it’s all we’ve got right now!). Tonight is all genres, requests and mayhem (Saturday sets are themed/genre specific). Things start at 9pm PST, and I’ll go as long as people are hanging out. And head over here to find out my weekly DJ schedule.
Tonight! Another raucous night of heavy metal at Ground Kontrol. I bought a couple of rippers today at the Eugene Record Show, and they’re ready to be unleashed. 8 p.m. – 2 minutes to midnight!
My friend Mark Arnone would have been 47 today. He was the OG DJ Mark In the Dark and, as you can see, a massive KISS fan. In fact, that’s how we met in high school. I was drawing Gene Simmons on my notebook, and he saw it, and that was it. We did all kinds of degenerate things together. We went to a bunch of KISS shows. I was the best man in his wedding. Mark died too soon–only 36–and that is only amplified the older I get. I miss him. Happy birthday, friend.
Tonight I’ll climb up into the booth at the world-famous Ground Kontrol classic arcade for my monthly Black Sunday gig. All metal. All vinyl. From extreme black to bands that just wanna rock and roll all nite, I’ve got you covered. Also, no cover. It’s a holiday tomorrow so come have a drink(s) and play some Ms. Pac-Man. 8 p.m. – 2 minute to midnight.
I’ll be in the DJ booth at one of my favorite Portland watering holes tonight, spinning all vinyl. Rock. Psych. Punk. Glam. Prog. Metal. 8 p.m. till the beer runs dry.
